Applications in the Identity space

I wish I had more time to work with Hadoop but careers at my level are hard to find, seems like positions are all entry level. I currently work in the Identity space with Oracle Idm products, just wondering if there are use cases that big data could help with. Currently all identity products work with relational databases, and often the database structures are so complex that a simple query for a user's history can load the database server down to where the application is slowed. I would prefer to take every transaction off board into an hdfs so that the reporting is pre-assembled. It's hard to sell that to a client if you haven't done it before.

Does the book have examples where it walks you through the analysis and design process?

I was unable to get the book through Barnes & Noble, it shows as not in the warehouse. Is it only available through the publisher?

The book does cover some elements of code design in chapter 12, and chapters 4 and 7 cover some MapReduce applications. But there's no section that's wholly dedicated to analysis and design.

I'm not sure when the book will start shipping from B&N, but I do know that Amazon is shipping:
